Sensory-Friendly Family Events

A special time of sensory discovery in the Nasher Galleries and Garden. Families with children who have sensory processing challenges, like those on the Autism spectrum, are invited to the Nasher for customized programming intended to engage, nurture, and educate all types of learners. Visitors create, interact and explore their way through sensory-friendly activities when the museum is not open to the public.

As part of the Dallas Sensory Consortium,  The Nasher Sculpture Center hosts one event per year, featuring in-house projects and tables hosted by partner institutions (Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas Zoo, Dallas Public Library, Texas Woman's University), and also participates at sensory events with constituent partners (Dallas Museum of Art, and Dallas Zoo). Texas Woman’s University professors and graduate students lend their expertise in planning and facilitating activities and sensory havens to ensure a positive experience for all. 

Upcoming Events

Out of concern for our visitors' health and safety, we will be postponing our March 2020 event until the fall. Please check our website later this spring for updated event information.
